Should all food premises
be graded the same way?
Auckland Council has drafted an updated food safety bylaw to increase
the safety of food sold to the public.
As part of the bylaw we are proposing to assess all food premises in the
same way, so you can be confident that food premises across the region
meet a consistent standard.
Copies of the summary of proposal, full draft bylaw and submission form
are available online or at libraries, service centres or local board offices.
Submissions will be received from 4 February to 4 March 2013.
Play your part in delivering the world's most liveable city. Have your say at:

Blues coach John Kirwan and team captain Ali Williams both harbour fond memories of Eden Park. Here's
what they had to say about the hallowed grounds.
John Kirwan: ''Winning the world cup final there
was a really special moment. There was one
particular try I scored against Bay of Plenty that
was really special to me at the time. I think, in
retrospect, the try against Italy in 1987 was as
well. I wish I had a dollar for every time that was
played. I've got so many memories, for me it's
just a really special place.''

Ali Williams: ''I've got three favourite memories.
The first was in 2003 when we played the Aussies
and beat them to win the Bledisloe Cup back. My
second one was 2003 when we won the Super 12
final in front of a home crowd. The place was
packed and everyone was in blue and white which
was magic. It was against my old friends the
Crusaders which made it even better. The one
that sticks out to a lot of people was 2011 when
we won the world cup. I love the place, love playing
there and love how it's evolved since the first time
I played on it in 2001 right through to now.''
